No doubt about it, couponing is rapidly gaining in popularity. I now see others regularly using coupons while shopping. Even just one year ago, this was a rare sight to see.
But there are still skeptics out there. You know the ones. Heck, I used to be one!
“Coupons aren’t worth the time… they make you spend more… I can’t keep them organized”… etc, etc
I have heard such statements time and time again. If I had a nickel…
It is not easy to convince a coupon skeptic to start couponing. Short of physically taking them shopping, there is not much you can do to convert them.
Really? Gosh, I hope that’s not true… afterall, there are always coupons for toothpaste and deodorant, right?
lotions, soaps, wash
The coupons for items above can be found in Sunday newspaper inserts. Free online coupons are also plentiful for most major brands. Sometimes coupons are seasonal, so you won’t see them year round, but they are out there!
Also contrary to popular belief, not all food coupons are for junk food. There are frequent coupons available for organic products. One great resource for organic coupons is Mambo Sprouts. Sign up for their coupons by mail or print them online.
Feel free to share this post with the coupon skeptic in your life. In the next installment of my Coupon Myths series, I will address the belief that coupons cause you to buy things you would not normally buy.
